ABSTRACT: Based on what we believe is a complete survey of the previous literature on Vietnamese millipedes, we present a list of 136 species recorded from Vietnam. We present all published records, and several new ones. Locality names have been updated to correspond with modern names. Sinocallipus cf. simplipodicus Zhang, 1983, is recorded as new for the Vietnamese fauna. Tonkinbolus scaber Verhoeff, 1939, is recorded as new for the Chinese fauna (Hong Kong). Prionobelum leve (Attems, 1938) is a new combination (from Chinosphaera). Kalorthomorpha gracilis gigas Attems, 1953 is elevated from subspecific status under Oxidus gracilis (C.L. Koch, 1847) to specific status as Oxidus gigas (Attems, 1953), stat.n. Sellanucheza gen.n. is proposed as a replacement name for Szechuanella Hoffman, 1960, nom. praeoccup. The genus includes two Vietnamese species, Sellanucheza grandis (Golovatch, 1984), comb.n. and S. variata (Attems, 1953), comb.n., in addition to Sellanucheza tenebra (Hoffman, 1960), comb.n. (China, the type-species).
